Miniature Schnauzers are spunky, lively and full of personality, perfect Movember spokes dogs.
As most breeds in the Terrier Group, they sport sexy beards and moustaches. The facial hair is not just for show for these courageous canines.

In a confrontation with a rodent, the facial hair served as a buffer between the rodent's teeth and the dog's skin.
